Jane Scarlett moved into public health after qualifying as a GP. She worked as a consultant in Surrey for 8 years, then Kingston for 12 years where she led on maternal and child public health. Her interest in maternity services and in screening led to her moving to PHE London in 2015 as the London lead for antenatal and newborn (ANNB) screening. She is shair of the NHS Infectious Diseases in Pregnancy Screening Programme Advisory Group and co-ordinates an informal network of screening and immunisation managers and leads interested in ANNB screening.
